Default Pipes of War - published 1920

I've recently found this book online in an archive, available in a variety of formats for download. I've read two chapters so far and i deem it interesting enough to post it here in case its new to others as well.

I have stumbled across the Fred T MacLeod section in the past, but never realized it was only a small section of a much larger work. Great info from Post WW1 era.

Download the B/W PDF one if you are gonna print.

As I recall there were only 200 copies of this book printed at the time, and there was also a book of WW1 tunes that accompanied it. Very rare to find both. Beautiful book.

There is a paperback reprint of the book, unfortunately with only black-and-white illustrations (Uckfield, East Sussex: The Naval and Military Press Ltd, n.d.).

I have copy no. 150, but unfortunately the portfolio of original Pipe Tunes is missing!
Please note that there are errors in the book.

Thank you very much for posting this, as I consider both of these books an essential part of a piper's 'cultural literacy'.
